Milan Set to Complete First Summer Signing

Serie A heavyweights Milan are on the verge of unveiling their first summer signing, with Daichi Kamada set to join Eintracht Frankfurt. As reported by TUTTOmercatoWEB, the Rossoneri have scheduled pre-contract medicals for the Japan international ahead of his arrival on a Bosman deal. 

Kamada’s long-overdue move to Milan is now a mere formality. Following an impressive six-year stint at Frankfurt, the 26-year-old is ready to embark on a new chapter. San Siro will be his next destination as Stefano Pioli’s men prepare to finalize his first signing of what promises to be a busy summer. 

If the report proves valid, Kamada will touch down in Lombardy later this month to undergo his medicals before penning a three-year deal worth €3m net per season. Several other clubs had been interested in landing the ex-Sagan Tosu midfielder, but he’ll don the Rossoneri shirt next season. 

Capable of playing anywhere along the midfield line, Kamada is a versatile player, well-versed in operating in more advanced positions as well. His flexibility should provide Pioli with an exciting option in the engine room following Brahim Diaz’s return to Real Madrid. 

Considering he comes free of charge, Milan duo Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada can be proud of their maiden piece of business after replacing Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara. Hopefully for the Rossoneri fans, Kamada’s arrival will be the first in a long line of much-needed summer recruitments. 

The defensive title went terribly wrong for Milan last season as they allowed Napoli to waltz away with the Scudetto practically midway through the campaign. Pioli’s lads made amends by reaching the Champions League semi-finals for the first time since 2007, only to bow out to fierce rivals Inter.

It feels like a lack of strength in depth cost Milan in that two-legged tie. Addressing that shortcoming is vital if they’re to mount a title challenge against next term. And Kamada seems to be a good start.
